Jen. Irias was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, in 1989. Her curiosity about art—specifically color and drawing—was first awakened during her childhood when she visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Later, as a teen, she began to develop her skills in conceptualizing, drawing, and painting at the Carolina Carias Art Studio and continued her work there even as she pursued a degree in Civil Engineering. Her passion for art persevered, though, and she decided instead to dedicate her career to the Visual Arts.
